    Telegram and Part alert on twitter, I was bombarded 24hrs a day with alot of european website notifications and alot of scalper cards on other sites I can't mention. The FEs eventually popped up again which made it worth it.

    I just became a slave to my phone, the amount of afternoon VR sessions i've missed out on worried I'd miss stuff if I was on the headset. ;)

    With OCUK queue system I'm not sure we can even say that!

    Considering they are expecting an OK (31-75) amount I'd have thought we'd see more shipping posts...

    It depends on how you pay with them I find If you go through PayPal it gets confused when you go back and adds the posting. Funny though how some people are paying £150+ over the top and yet £11.50 is too much for next day secured postage.

    Actually the 'large' term supposedly denotes 75-100.

    Copied and pasted for reference:
    Very small = Less than 10 units
    Small = 10-30 units
    OK = approx 50 units
    Large = 75-100 units
    Very large = 100+
    Dream = 250+

    Now, as for how he'd describe 30-49 units, or 51-75 units, it's not clear. Some of that would be covered by 'approx 50' but who knows really?!

    And all of the above is if you trust the number system is being remembered and applied consistently!

    On 3080 Gaming X Trios, I found a table from a competitor that has the ETA for these card on 2nd-6th Dec with only 150 outstanding orders to fulfil. Depending on that shipment volume, they might have some spare to get in stock for early December. Meanwhile, It could also mean that MSI is shipping to UK around that date and OCuk is likely to also receive a number of cards. How much I dont know. what I know is that my position in the queue is higher than the number of outstanding orders from the competitor.

    Meaning... I'll keep my eyes open for early Dec MSI Gaming X Trios Shipment.

    Directly from the website. You have to go to the Nvidia website and when they show availability it generates a unique identifier for it which goes to an actual UK retailer that is the largest in the country to process payment and shipping.

    Payment authorised email through from other etailer. My hopes are getting higher that I got one. Just needs picking and dispatching now! I was mid meeting when the drop happened and I think the other people in the call thought I'd disappeared. No idea what was said in those lost two minutes from adding to basket to paying.

    Follow telegram app and partalert. The blue competitor is the sole provider for FE cards in the UK. I got one a month ago and already also got a strix 3080 in my machine thanks to it.. cancelled my pre order here ages ago. Big joke OCUK. Won't buy here again sadly
